### Methods to calculate "What percent of 9 is 3" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "What percent of 9 is 3"

- For 9, our answer will be 3
- For 100, our answer will be x
- 9*x = 100*3 (In Step 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- x = 100*3/9 = 300/9 = 33.3333

#### 33.3333% of 9 is 3

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate "What percent of 9 is 3"

- For 9, our answer will be 3
- For 100, our answer will be x
- 3/x = 9/100 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 9/100 = 3/x or x/3 = 100/9
- x = 3*100/9 = 300/9 = 33.3333

#### 33.3333% of 9 is 3

### Percentage examples

Percentages express a proportionate part of a total. When a total is not given then it is assumed to be 100. E.g. 9% (read as 9 percent) can also be expressed as 9/100 or 9:100.Example: If 9% (9 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 9 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 9*100 (i.e. $900) are invested in stocks.

### Percentage sign (%)

The percent (per cent i.e. per hundred) sign % is the standard symbol to indicate a percentage, to signify a number or ratio as a fraction of 100. Related signs include the permille (per thousand) sign ‰ and the permyriad (per ten thousand) sign ‱ (also known as a basis point), which indicate that a number is divided by one thousand or ten thousand, respectively.### Scholarship programs to learn math
